Kitsap County auditor’s office seeking committee members

Committee members to draft voters’ guide arguments against proposed school ballot measures.

PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County’s auditor’s office is seeking individuals to serve on committees to draft voters’ guide arguments against proposed ballot measures in the Bremerton and North Kitsap school districts.

Each of the four measures will be on the Feb. 13, 2018, Special Election ballot.

Each district is proposing two ballot measures and separate committees are requested for each measure. The Bremerton School District is proposing a school support levy and a technology and capital projects levy. The North Kitsap School District is proposing an educational program and operations funding levy and a facilities and technology capital projects levy.

The Feb. 13 online voters’ guide includes official ballot titles, explanatory statements, arguments “for” and “against” each measure, as well as rebuttals, said Steve Gardner of the auditor’s office. He said committees writing arguments in favor of each measure have already been formed.

Committee members do not have to be residents of the district in order to draft arguments. Interested parties should contact the Election Division by 4:30 p.m., Dec. 22. Those interested are asked to email auditor@co.kitsap.wa.us or call 360-337-7128 if interested.

Resolutions submitted by the districts for each measure are at the Resolutions page on the Kitsap County Auditor’s website, goo.gl4WMcii.
